Wondering how long does it usually take to do a weekly/monthly/quarterly service? Currently we have one person that does the service and I really don't think it should take him as long as it does.

The time it takes to PM a CP643 is really dependent on how much you run the machine. If you are running 3 shifts obviously the machine will require more attention than one shift.

You are probably not going to want to hear this, but it does take a substantial amount of time to PM these machines CORRECTLY.We are running two shifts and here is the approx time it takes to do PM's.

WEEKLY: 15 minutes tops. Basically a wipe down of the outer machine covers and a quick visual on the inside to make sure everything is ok.

MONTHLY: About 6-8 hours with one experienced tech doing the PM. It is not necessary to strip the grease off every time.Spreading around the grease that's already on the machine is sufficient. We only strip and put new grease on every third monthly.It is important however to make sure your techs pump new grease into the zerks every month.

QUARTERLY:6-7 hours if the tech is real experienced, 8 if they are learning. We only do the windmills and PM underneath the turret during the quarterly.

These machines will pretty much run forever if you keep them clean and lubed.

How long are your PM's taking ?

You could always go out on the floor with the tech and do the PM with them. That way you would have 1st hand experience and would be able to offer some creative insight as to how this person could better manage thier time. Or you can post a question on the net and judge from the responses.
